Earlier this week, a Baltimore man was sentenced to four years in prison for setting fire to the CVS, which became a focal point for national TV cameras. Raymon Carter, 24, was also ordered to pay $500,000 restitution. Authorities say Carter went into the CVS after others broke in, and set fire to paper products. He also tried to break into the stores pharmaceutical safe.
The pills that were stolen from the store also continue to have lasting effects. On Thursday, 25-year-old Rashad Robinson pleaded guilty to possession of medication that was stolen from the CVS. Police say they found a bottle containing 60 pills of Aprazolam in Robinson’s bedroom. He faces a year in prison.
Two others — Darius Stewart and Donta Betts — were also charged in connection with the Penn and North destruction. They pleaded not guilty, but remain in jail, according to U.S. Attorney Rod Rosenstein’s office.
